BRAC Bank has been named the sole winner for Best Retail Bank in Bangladesh at the 10th International Excellence in Retail Financial Services Awards Programme.
The bank received the award at The International Excellence in Retail Financial Services 2011 Awards ceremony, held in conjunction with the region's most prestigious retail banking event, the Excellence in Retail Financial Services Convention.
Mr. Abdur Rahman, Head of Branch Banking of BRAC Bank, received the award at the award ceremony held at the Shangri La Hotel in Kuala Lumpur on March 11, 2011. BRAC Bank is the sole winner in Asia for the award in Best Retail Bank in Bangladesh.
